Knud Erik Andersen, CEO of European Energy said:
“Today’s transaction was very successful. We quickly built a strong order book, and it is very pleasing to see such solid investor appetite for our bond. The funds will allow us to accelerate our plans and increase our activities across our markets. In a few years we expect to double our construction activity and build more than 1 GW of renewable generation capacity each year.”
